Only true if you don’t spend all your time here.

I can’t began to think of how many times I flashed my Liteon back and forth.

BTW, the general wisdom is to get the 1693 over the 1673 as the cost is so close and the 1693 works a little smoother with the same firmware.

I remember the days of using mtkflash in pure dos to downgrade a firmware. Or using wses in dos for cd quality tests. Ahh, those were the good old days :stuck_out_tongue: Man we have sure got it easy now.
